Two More Potential Commitments Coming?

For those that follow particular Wisconsin staff on Twitter -- particularly director of player personnel Saeed Khalif, recruiting analyst Jensen Gebhardt, recruiting assistant Warren Herring and recruiting analyst Mike Carens -- there is a "signal" that hints there may be commitments forthcoming.

That was announced not just once ... but twice on Thursday evening.

Who exactly may be joining the class of 2021 is not known at this time. However, stay tuned to AllBadgers.com for more coverage once that becomes public.

Catching up with four-star 2022 in-state lineman 

For a high school sophomore, Carson Hinzman certainly is getting a ton of attention nationally. 

"It's such a surreal thing," Hinzman told AllBadgers.com on Monday, "and I'm really fortunate to have a lot of the people around me, keeping me grounded a lot of the time."

2021 OLB Darryl Peterson on His Recruiting Process Through the Pandemic and Wisconsin

On Tuesday, AllBadgers.com caught up with the Akron (OH) Archbishop Hoban standout and discussed how the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced his recruiting process.

"It did however, kind of obviously. I can't take my official visits, so that kind of was a setback because I was looking forward to taking all four of the ones that I had scheduled for June," Peterson said. "Other than that, it really didn't make a difference for me because all the places I'm considering right now I've been to before.

"The official visits for me would have just been like the last look at everything, get to meet some of the guys, more of the guys and stuff like that. I really didn't think I missed a beat as far as recruiting goes."

"Oh, Wisconsin is definitely at the top of my list," Hallman said on Wednesday evening. "They're definitely No. 1 going into all of this. Wisconsin is definitely up there. I mean I love Wisconsin, everything it brings to the table."
